Penang Murals by Ernest Zacharevic

George Town, the capital of Penang Island in Malaysia has been sprawling in its street art glory. Around corners and hidden in alleys is where you can find these creative masterpieces. A very easy trail to walk but if walking your way around Georgetown in the sun doesn’t look appealing then better go get yourself a trishaw or hire a bike.20160520_134109(0)-01[1]20160520_134008-01[1]Ernest Zacharevic, a London-trained Lithuanian artist has painted beautiful murals in George Town. His artwork is spread out across Penang’s city centre and is truly pretty impressive. The street art depicts images of everyday life in Malaysia and is combined with real physical objects such as a bicycle, a swing or a motorcycle. Tourists taking photos are simply invited to take part of the scene. Can you resist then? I cannot!

Four Points By Sheraton, Penang

20160519_174651-01_(1)-01-01[1]

If you are looking for a nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel with beach and yet close to town, Four Points is the right place for you. Situated on a tranquil stretch of white sandy Tanjung Bungah beach, overlooking the Straits of Malacca. This low-key modern hotel is just 15 minutes drive from George Town and Batu Ferringhi, 45 minutes from the Penang International Airport and merely 4 km to Gurney Drive promenade. Certainly a great halfway point between beach and the hustle and bustle of George Town.

As I went to see the room, I was amazed. The deluxe ocean front room did served my expectations – tidy, modern, beautiful sea view (you could watch sunrise from your room’s window too!), has all the basic amenities including hairdryer and iron. Oh yes, just what I needed to escape from a busy work life in Singapore. And needless to say, free wifi everywhere.20160519_183641-01_(1)[1]20160519_183622-01[1]20160519_175141-01[1]20160519_175221-01-01[1]20160519_175613-01[1]

Their staffs were helpful and friendly. It was indeed a breezy check in for me. By the way, my nth time making hotel reservation from booking.com and it has always been easy and reliable.

Good food with a great view. Such a combo! This was actually one of my favorite during our stay. There’s a casual restaurant with a terrace offering ocean views, as well as a bar, an outdoor pool and meeting space. There’s direct beach access.20160519_184211-02[1]20160519_184150-01[1]20160519_184426-01[1]

If you wish to go to Batu Ferringhi, they also provide free shuttle on selected hours but on a first come first serve basis. Just approach the counter and have your name listed!
